Couture Week Trends & Overview: History Reinvented for a Younger Market

Chanel referenced the past through baroque designs and accents from Versailles, but kept everything modern with chic sandals, short lengths, on-trend bike shorts and fresh materials like concrete—very 2014, no? Valentino touched on flowing Grecian silhouettes with sheer detailing, perhaps channeling body-baring Rihanna’s latest red-carpet reveals. Armani Privé did an amazing job of channeling the bold beauty of old-Hollywood without going too Sunset Boulevard. And while the collection played on the look of big coats and even bigger (faux) fur, high-waisted shorts were popular in the collection, blending the decades together.

While most of us are soaking up the sun and planning backyard get-togethers, the fashion industry is gearing up for fall with the release of their F/W 14-15 campaigns. Most have featured popular models or bright new up-and-comers—like Gisele Bündchen for Isabel Marant or Lottie Moss for Calvin Klein—but Max Mara decided to shake up the game. Turning to A-lister Amy Adams to front their fall and upcoming spring campaigns, the Italian luxury brand is hoping a dose of Hollywood will stand out amongst the others.

Replacing Jennifer Garner who was the face of the brand last year, Adams was shot by Mario Sorrenti wearing the brand’s signature sunglasses, handbags and accessories. Featuring Max Mara’s Signature Bag, the Margaux and a new line of eyewear, the actress’ campaign images will be featured in approximately 50 store windows around the globe. There will be a total of five photographs for Adams, with handbag shots set to release in August and sunglasses coming in October. The campaign will be released worldwide including Moscow and Dubai.

Lupita Nyong’o Announces Ambassadorship with Beauty Brand Lancôme

Lupita Nyong’o has been having quite the year. It’s only April and she’s nabbed herself an Oscar, a SAG award, countless nominations and a campaign with Miu Miu—needless to say she’s doing pretty well. But the world can’t seem to get enough of the 31-year-old actress and this morning she announced via Instagram that she landed a gig with Lancôme. Known for her bold beauty and stunning red-carpet looks, she’s the perfect person to be a global ambassador for the French brand—almost too perfect. Are we going to be able to mimic the flawless skin and fearless nature of this “it” girl?

"I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history that I have always loved. I am particularly proud to represent its unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman's freedom to be herself," Nyong’o stated in a press release. Coming from an actress who seems so comfortable in her own skin and moves seamlessly from Hollywood bombshell to classic beauty, makes this new partnership seem like a match made in heaven.

Following in the footsteps of previous ambassadors like Julia Roberts, Lily Collins, Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz, Nyong’o is definitely in good company. Shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the campaign won’t be released until September, but she’s already speaking up about finding true beauty. “I had to give a speech about beauty right before the Oscars, and for me, beauty is a compassion for yourself and those around you,” Nyong’o told WWD. “And I think that in focusing on that, the light inside illuminates the beauty outside.” We couldn’t agree more.

Former GQ Associate Editor Lauren Bans Confesses to Being @CondeElevator

We can’t say our imagination doesn’t fly straight to The Devil Wears Prada references whenever we think of the Vogue offices. Condé Nast seems like one of those places where women are blanching at the mere thought of eating more than one stick of celery a day, men are looking more stylish than David Beckham and interns spend their days fetching coffee. And not surprisingly, our guesses weren’t far off. Yesterday, former GQ associate editor Lauren Bans confessed to being Twitter’s @CondeElevator—the account that confirmed all our suspicions.

Home to the offices of magazines like Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Lucky Magazine, Self and Allure just to name a few, Bans posed as the Condé Nast in-house elevator, tweeting scraps of conversation overheard on the ride. We read everything from the expected omg-you’re-actually-eating-that, to the trite “that shirt is so two months ago.”

And while these tweets are probably the most hilarious (and honest) things we’ve heard about the Condé Nast offices, not everybody was particularly thrilled with the insider approach to comedy. Bans ended the account in August 2011 after pressure from bosses and executives.

But now, two years later, she’s broken the silence and we’re pretty happy about it. After all we could never fault her for giving us a firsthand look into the world of Condé Nast. In her total run as “the elevator” (which was less than a week), Bans gained over 75,000 followers and inspired numerous copy-cat accounts. Representatives from GQ claim they had no idea the former editor was the person behind it all. Bans left the publication a month ago to pursue a career in screenwriting—we can only hope that soon we’ll see some tweeted conversations from the Hollywood back lots.
